House of Representatives passed six out of six pro-environment votes!

Good news from Save Our Environment Organization today!

The House voted in favor of:

  • Two amendments to preserve the 25-year-old moratorium on new offshore drilling.
  • Requiring the EPA to better protect wetlands and other waters.
  • Preventing the EPA from moving forward with plans to weaken the public's right to know about toxic chemicals.
  • Eliminating subsidies for logging roads in Alaska's Tongass National Forest.
  • Prohibiting the Department of the Interior from awarding new leases to oil companies that are drilling off our coasts without paying royalties.
